October Finishes & Other November Goals

I was surprised at how much sewing I got done in October (in addition to my Knee PT). As usual, some of my time was spent cleaning and just looking for fabric.


** I made some Luggage Tags to be used as Name Tags at our Fall Retreat.

I reworked a pattern I found on the Internet and was pleased with the result.  I still hope to write up a Tutorial to post.

** I made a little zipper bag for the 3-year-old son of my Home Health Physical Therapist.  She is wonderful!  She worked with my husband 3 years ago when he had his two knees replaced, so I definitely wanted her to help me in my recovery.


Gift Bag – Including a Bottle of Bubbles and Stickers

** I finished binding & added a label to a Queen Topper Quilt. You can read about it here, and I will post more pictures and details later. Plus made a companion Pillowcase to match.


2018-Oct – Binding Completed, Label added, Pillowcase Made

** I made a mini quilt – “My Motto” for a quilt retreat door prize (ok, still working on the binding).

** Finally, I made more Kennel/Shelter beds for my local quilt shop, Capital Quilts. I understand more have been sent out to comfort shelter animals affected by the recent Hurricanes (Florence & Michael).

** Graduated from Home Physical Therapy to Out Patient Physical Therapy.  My knee is getting better & stronger, but more work is needed.

Exercising my new knee will continue to take up a lot of my time, but I do hope to have some sewing time. November Goals:

** I will be attending a Quilt Retreat in the Blue Ridge Mountains, and am packing a few projects to work on, which include

## From My Carolina Home’s Autumn Jubilee Projects – Pumpkin Blocks & Star Blocks for a Table Runner or Small Quilt (haven’t decided) and Pumpkin Placemats

## November One Monthly Goal (OMG) – Fall Placemats from the Prize I won in August.  I wrote about this here.

## Tulip Time Wall Hanging – I got the fabric for this back in March.


Well, I’d better get my knee moving.  Hope you are getting some stitching time this weekend.


Happy Stitching & Moving!

  1. I’d love a tutorial on the luggage tags. They would make great Christmas gifts for next year. We have a large family, so, I’d be making lots of them.
